I think you are confused. Certainly, at no point have I sought the destruction of
AFRINIC. Indeed, any potential destruction of AFRINIC is the direct result of the
inevitable reaction when AFRINIC sought to destroy another company and that
company availed itself of the legal system in defense of its contractual rights.

Had AFRINIC stuck to its governing documents as written, rather than choosing
to invent restrictions which are not codified therein and use those as an artifice
to take adverse action against a resource member, there would be no basis
for any of the current legal claims by Cloud Innovation.

I still do not seek the destruction of AFRINIC, but rather the correction of its
behaviors. While I am not a fan of some of the things Cloud Innovation has
done, I see an RIR that does not operate according to its governing documents
as a much greater threat to the community than anything any resource member
has or could do.
